FS2004(FS9) Screenshots

Recommended Posts

There should be a pinned FS9 screenshot topic, where we can post screenshots to show that FS9 isn't quite dead in the water yet.

 

I recently dug out an old Hong Kong addon I had in the back of my cupboard (by flightsoft).  I remember trying it years ago and it slowed the simulator to a crawl on my old PC.  Now I can run it maxed out at a silky smooth 60 fps.  It still looks pretty impressive in my view, and the smoothness of the flying adds to the experience.

Looks reasonable, flytampa's looks better imho.

But, FS9 rocks.

Got a disk full recently and guess (once) what I deleted ?

Hi Folks,

 

Don't forget about "9 Dragons" Kai Tak - it's freeware - should be in the lib - it was fantastic for its time - honestly I don't recall how it compares to the screen you posted though...

 

Regards,

Scott

A cessna over flightsoft or a classic 747 over flytampa? We are no longer on FS9.1 but FS9.x . ;)

Yes, flood photoshop plugin used on the water.  :BigGrin:

 

Added for the screenshot. But as you said....I'm not looking at the water when landing at Kai Tak.  B)

Wow, trumps mine edetroit, great to see such an excellent screenshot.

 

Photoshop is cheating just a little (although looks awesome). How about any raw, undoctored screenshots so we can see what's genuinly possible on our computers (warts and all).

 

Thanks for the pic. Shame screenshots can't be posted directly into the forum though.

Ed,

 

That's one of the finest screenshots I've ever seen in Flight Sim - doctored or not - and what a perfectly classic subject matter...

 

You've got that screenshot completion you entered that in - cinched !!!

:wink:

 

Regards,
Scott

Don't let a little water reflection upset you. Have a look inside the cockpit of the arriving Cathay 743 and then you will see what is possible if you put your mind to it.  :wub:

 

I'm into video's run at 1:1 speed capturing sound and visuals. That gives a very good idea as to what's possible with FS9.

 

I run with highest possible settings, aircraft and ground shadows, high quality scenery and aircraft, real weather with high quality clouds, AES, full AI, FRAPS and FSrecorder.....plus updated database and approaches.

 

It does not get better than that IMO...... and it's still getting better!!!!

 

Edit* Shot 3 years ago on my old rig.

Here is an untouched screenshot from the Paris departure.  :hi:

Ed, how do you make the cockpit shake in 2D?

 

Shake your monitor .... works every time for me ......

I don't. The head latency effect is post production.....meaning I add the effect in the edit suite. (Active camera newbluefx)

 

I do not want cockpit shake when I am flying as it is hard enough to click on the right knob with the mouse as it is. 

 

It looks good on playback but is not necessary for sim flying heavy iron IMO...... if you had a full motion sim and were shaking with the sim maybe, but on my static monitor no.
